Big Water SE - weird pump issue - Page 4

post #31 of 39
well....i would say go ahead and risk it....u never know till u try....but remember there is always a risk.... i think u should probably be able to hit at least 112MHz with the invidia card with stability....and as for the sata port there is no definitive way to know which port is locked unless its mentioned in black and white or u try it one after the other....

another thing that i failed to mention in earlier posts....dont ever tighten ur connections on the big water more than needed coz u r more likely than not going to break the plastic and u r going to spring a leak like i did....i screwed my 9800 pro that way....so dont take the risk....

Please enlighten me on this.

So if you are using a PCI-E mainboard, you have to worry about the pci-e frequency? Isn't there an option to lock that frequency to default no matter what the bus speed is?

Also, I am jealous of those temps. Damn they are better than mine by far, even if my board reads way to high.

Hum, max2 reading high? ehh, I belive it, my max3 allways read high..

Humm there is an option to lock it (@ 100), but this isn't like AGP: PCI frequency, there is a little more tweaking room in PCIe buses, and they don't mind if they get OCed themselves. Your good for 24/7 use at 110 and up till 115, short bursts (6 hrs at a time).. after that, your doing harm.

Wow, great temps!

If I get near that, I'll be thrilled.

What about pump noise? Can you hear your pump?

I know this sounds funny but try tapping on the lines. I kinda had the same problem. pulled out the tank and blow in it while its all connected, forcing the air out. But watch out you might get a mouth full of fluid.

Well I got this system yesterday and managed to get it all installed within 3 hours, (thats with drilling holes to fit the rad onto the rear of the case), when it came to actually turning the whole things on I did this:

1. With the system off I filled the coolant tank full.

2.
After the water had settled down a little I filled it up again.

3. I then turned the system on and let the pump do its thing.

4. While the pump was pumping water around the system I kept filling the coolant tank up until I got a steady flow of water in the tubes.

5. With air still in the system I just left the coolant tank cap off and let the system sort itself out the air cleared itself after about 30 minutes I think.

6. I then filled up the coolant tank because there was a little bit of air still in the tank.

I'm getting temperatures of around 30 - 32 idle, is this normal for this kit?

I'd say you get what you pay for, if you're fortunate.

Yeah, my stock BigWater Se--cooling both CPU and GPU--gives about 35 idle/46 full load, which isn't going to win me any extreme cooling fanboys.

On the plus side, it cools as well as the noisiest air solution in silence, was inexpensive, gave me a pleasant and easy intro to watercooling, made for a neat, compact install, and is an adequate starting place for the endless upgrades to come.

Back to the topic--I'd say your temps are normal for that kit. If you want lower, I can offer some upgrade suggestions on where to start tweaking.

Hope this helps.
